Acanto wool coat, made to measure.

The Acanto coat combines the late Victorian silhouette and soutache embroidery style, with a romantic touch.
The coat is made of wool, it's lined with fabric made of natural fibers and the soutache embroidery is hand sewn.
To give a more fitted silhouette the bodice is boned (with spiral steel bones or synthetic whalebone) and the round cut of the coat's skirt and sleeves emphasize the waist line.
The collar's cuts are not only decorative but they give a more severe silhouette contrasting to the flowy sleeves

The coat is closed on the front with hooks (not visible on the outside), but you can choose the option "frog button" to add a vintage alamaro/ frog closure on the front.

The front and sleeves can be decorated with synthetic fur, or you can choose the option without the fur borders: in this case the soutache embroidery will be closer to the centre front.

Please note: this type of coat is warm but can be heavy depending on the type of wool fabric requested.

The coat will be made in the color/colors of your choice: please send a message to check color availability
*fabric or color availability depends on the suppliers and can change from season to season*

Any design/fabric change and/or any addition of decorative details must be requested before purchase and involve a variation in costs; your fabric choice must be communicated before purchase.

Mock-up and fitting:

Once I have received your measurements I will make a mock-up of the coat: this prototype will be necessary to achieve the correct fitting for this coat. The mock up service is provided both for customers who can come by the studio for fittings and for customers living abroad.

Customers living abroad (or that cannot come by the studio) will receive the mock-up via courier: we will schedule a video call in which we are going to check the fitting and, once any changes have been established, the customer will send the prototipe back to Elaine's studio (please note: the cost of the mock-up shipment, return and custom fees are charged to the customer).


The cost of the mock-up and fitting is already included in the price of this coat but the eventual shippings fees are not.
